Solar water heaters now mandatory in Hawaii
A bill was approved by the governor of Hawaii, to fix solar water heaters in every home and building, and declared it as the first state to make compulsion of these heaters. As per the bill there will be a restriction to issue permits of any buildings where there are no solar water heaters. However, there are restrictions in the bills if the houses are located in forested areas where the amount of sunshine is not proper. As per state data Hawai is the only state in all over the world which is fully dependent on fossil fuels and more than ninety percent of the energy resources are imported from other countries.
Five years ago, such idea was brought by the state Sen. Gary Hooser, who is the vice chairman of energy and environment committee. It is very pleasing to know the fact that they recognized the necessity of such a bill and the benefits that are related to it.
